Flight of Fantasy: Pat McGrath's Feathered Eyes for Maison Valentino Couture Spring/Summer 2019, Paris Fashion Week

Sometimes a beauty moment happens and literally explodes across social media, liked and shared countless times.  The Maison Valentino Spring/Summer 2019 couture show in Paris this week had such a beauty moment thanks to the gorgeous vision and artistry of legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath who framed the models’ eyes with feathers in a flourish that complimented the ultra-feminine gowns.  The models looked like ethereal, exotic birds and added to the visual delight and drama that is expected from couture.  

How she did it:  McGrath lined the models eyes with her PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil in Extreme Black on both the top and bottom eyelids, creating softened cat eye shape.  She then applied false eyelashes on both lids before attaching feathers that had been dyed to match each gown.  She finished the look with her Fetish Eyes Mascara in Black.  The effect was almost like a mask that fluttered as the models moved their eyes.  Truly mesmerizing and captivating.  She finished the look with a glossy rose/nude lip with gold flecks, using her Lust:Gloss in Earth Angel on lighter complexions and Bronze Venus on darker complexions.

I love this look so much that I am tempted to try just a single, small feather on the outer edge of each eye on date night or girls’ night, and I’ll go all out to attempt to recreate the look for Mardi Gras parties, Festival Season, or Halloween.  Who doesn’t love a feather?
